Equifax takes down customer service page after new hack

Equifax has probably been hacked again

Equifax - whose multimillionaire CEO chose to set sail from the company weeks after the announcement that, under his watch, the information of 143 million Americans was obtained by hackers - was sending visitors of its website to the completely bogus software update. Equifax says it took the page down "out of an abundance of caution" as it investigates.

Earlier this month, Equifax said its outside security consultant had concluded an investigation into the breach, which it first detected in July.

Equifax has also said a file containing names and birthdates of 15.2 million people in the United Kingdom were accessed.

Equifax said the attack may also have compromised data on almost 700,000 Britons.

When users attempted to contest incorrect information on their credit report, the site redirected them to an unfamiliar URL, which prompted the update.

"We are aware of the situation identified on the equifax.com website in the credit report assistance link", an Equifax spokesman told The Hill on Thursday.

According to Ars Technica, the now-deactivated section of Equifax's website redirected Abrams to the domain hxxp//:centerbluray.info, which tried to dupe him into downloading a fake, malware-ridden Flash update.

The company, which gathers data on consumers for credit inquiries, has blamed a combination of human and technical error for the massive breach - not the largest on record but potentially the most damaging because of the sensitive financial information on consumers it holds in its databases.
